Wong Kar-wai filmed "Blossoms" in three years, which is still a TV series. Efficiency is high for him. It is said that when filming Wong Kar-wai's scene, it is necessary to peel off the skin, and these stars spit on Wong Kar-wai and laugh once and again.
Filming "Spring Light", was abroad, in order to prevent Tony Leung from running away, Wong Kar-wai also hid their passports, Tony Leung and Leslie Cheung planned an escape route, and one of them was sick and almost couldn't come back.
Similarly, "A Generation of Grandmasters" was prepared to completed, a full 13 years, and during the filming, she was afraid that the Korean Song Hye Kyo would return to China, and she also hid her passport.
Slow work out of meticulous work, "slow" is not terrible, the terrible thing is to write the script on the day, or, think of what to shoot, the actor does not even know what he is filming, let alone figure out what the director is expressing.
"East Evil West Poison", he just thought of what to write, today it was filmed well, tomorrow an inspiration appears, can overturn the remake.
A group of top currents in the Hong Kong circle are consuming with him. The role of patting Wang Zuxian is gone.
The clip came out, and Tony Leung realized that he had changed from evil in the east to poison in the west... Only then did I know that Carina Lau was playing her own wife.
Time has been sawing for so long, and literary art, the cost must be more than ah.
In order to balance the expenses, Liu Zhenwei can only pull this group of top stars to shoot "East Becomes West". So this group of people went crazy funny on the set of "East Becomes West" in the morning, and pretended to be deep on the set of "East Evil West Poison" in the afternoon.
Maggie Cheung complained, because Wong Kar-wai often writes scripts on the spot, and thirty or forty people start work every day, and they have nothing to do, just waiting for him to find inspiration on the spot.
And the same shot, he has to shoot sixty or seventy times, in her opinion there is no difference, but he wants it, you have to endure.
"Blossoms" Xin Zhilei shot a shot of looking up and looking back for one night, and Xin Zhilei was photographed crying. This is considered mercy of his subordinates.
There are also people who dare to choke with Wang Jiawei, this person is Faye Wong. She kept her face stinky when filming, and Tony Leung thought she hated herself, and Faye Wong later explained that she hated Wong Kar-wai.
Tony Leung's performance skills are gods, Wong Kar-wai's contributions are indispensable, and he is also the one who suffers. "A Fei's True Story" was filmed for more than three months, a scene of eating pears, no matter how he ate Wong Kar-wai was not satisfied, and finally ate 27 times. When he got home, he cried, crying and telling Carina Lau, "I can't act."
What's even funnier is that this scene of eating pears was finally cut down. Not only that, he filmed for three months, and finally appeared for only three minutes in the film.
Later, Tony Leung was relieved and began to comfort the actor who was tortured by Wong Kar-wai.
Filming "2046", Takuya Kimura was not convinced by such an unscripted mode, and was forced by Wong Kar-wai to say the sentence "I think I am a very useless man"
Tony Leung enlightened him, "Take it easy and learn to enjoy the process".
The process was experienced, but in the end it was cut for 7 minutes. This is five years for Takuya Kimura. I went back to Japan and complained to the media several times.
Li Ang is envious, he is an honest person, what to shoot, how the actor will interpret, what to express, he will explain to the actor one by one.
But Wong Kar-wai "has no script, so he dares to let a bunch of stars film." I don't want to shoot today, so I don't care. Or shoot for weeks, months, years, turn around and throw it aside and start over. ”
In the end, he took away all the awards.
Wong Kar-wai directs plays very slowly, but his starting point is the pursuit of quality and inspiration, which is the most scarce in the current entertainment industry.
The above stars are over a hundred years old, rarely appear, some have withdrawn from the screen for a long time, Wong Kar-wai's movie, is also one step less,
If there is no golden sign of Wong Kar-wai, will there be stars in this era, willing to spend several years just to polish a movie?
